I’ve done heaps of research on fixed gears and read reviews on all the best parts. I know the pros and cons and performance issues of certain setups… But in the end my fetish for aesthetics was victorious and my bike became more and more hipster every day. Although it looks poser I do like to ride it a lot and even though it’s a chunky 10kg I don’t find it too heavy (just a better workout for me to lose weight).
I bought the machined arrospok as I was running a front brake, but my old brake doesn’t fit in this new fork so I have to ride brakeless for now. I’d rather have it and not need it than need it and not have it so this is the one item missing from my build.
Also I’m just looking to get double straps for the pedals and perhaps a better crankset in the future once I start making money again. A recent redundancy has slowed down the cash flow unfortunately…
It’s a Spanish frame and a carbon fork. “Macario”. Don’t know too much about it as there’s not much online (in English). I’ve always liked the down angled top tube.
Just running Aerospoke front, B43 rear, Snafu stem and risers (forgot the brand, bought from Saint Cloud) with Oury grips. RH+O chainring with Lasco cranks (47/17 ratio). Brooks B17 Standard saddle.
No hardcore NJS parts yet, but money is an issue at this stage.
Bought the frame sprayed black already but just touched it up with another coat of matte black. It’s a ghetto paint job which I prefer over nice clean paint as I don’t have to take too much care of it!
I wanted a small accent of colour but it’s always hidden under my butt anyways…
